    warning do not use clothes for cash 20th May 11 at 3:10 PM
    Official insert:

    Clothesforcash has asked us to make some clarifications:

    Our sacks now do not contain/show a line to which to fill to! We now use City Link National couriers to provide independent 3rd party confirmation of clothing weights to ALL our customers. Finally, we do not charge for any form of clothing return to customers and even the amount we pay per kilogram of clothing is now

    Back to the original post....

    -------- is a con. They collected my clothes and then refused to pay me any money for them they said i hadnt filled my sack to the line which i had!

    You cant prove it its all on their side. Their depot is so far away and they know you cant do anything?

    They even had the cheek to ask me for £20.00 if i wanted them back.

    What a con dont bother. Give your old clothes to a friend or a sell them at a car boot etc not worth it? They steal clothes.

    I wanted to warn people.

    How do you (the company) know exactly who 'this lady' is????

    Have you only ever had one customer?

    Clothesfor cash, are you terms and conditions then as simple as the ones on here where the rules are on a simple click at the top of the forum? Only you appear to have either msised them or chosen to ignore them as you are not allowed to post as a company without permission.

    So, you take someones clothes and say it is their own fault because they do not understand the T and Cs and then completely fail to read those on this site when you attempt to defend yourself.

    Hmm, I find that extremely amusing

    was going to say the same thing, you haven't complied with the MSE forums terms and conditions either, Pay her the money she is owed and stop being a scam or you will end up on Watchdog's wall of shame.

    Red Devil have you contacted your local trading standards team to see if they investigate?
    Well aint funny how its the little things in life that mean the most? Not where you live, the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes.

    Ok, so the company still took the clothes even though they were obviously contravening your own T and C's. laughable and so wrong!

    Don't read t and C's at your peril but hey, super duper clothes for cash, you have done your self no favours by posting like you did on here.

    If the company response was that bad, it should have been left so we could all see what their customer service was like.

    It is not a question of a bad response. The T&C of the forum says any company representation needs permission to post. But the jist was they said the OP hadn't followed their T&C hence why she didn't get paid.

    Just read their T&C. I would love to know how a marked line on a bin bag =15kg, it would all depend on the type of clothes and the material. Bunch of amature muppets you are and reeks of scam. Someone could put in say 5 bomber jacket type coats and goes well over the line but no where near the 15kg and therefore wouldn't pay you.

    Thanks for the warning was going to get rid of a bad or two (way too many clothes just laying about in my room!)

    Now I know where not to take it!!

    I hope CFC read all these comments and realise they're going to lose out on so many customers!!!

  • JimboP
    Close call - my partner looked at sending a load of clothes off but realised we had other bits to get rid of as well so ended up taking the whole lot to a car booty - looks like a good job we did now. I hope CFC pull their finger out and give you the money, or at least the clothes back red devil.
  • andy.m
    I was having a clear out and thinking of using CFC, I am glad that they showed their true colours and I can avoid them like the plague.
    Car booty here we come.

    Shame as if they stuck to their ethos then it would be a good system and could work well for all parties.

    Shot themselves in the foot from the sounds of things. If everyone who reads this thread warns a couple of friends who tell a couple of friends......
    Oh dear, all for the sake of a few quid.
    Bad practice, bad company.
    Thanks for the info OP, I have 3 large bags of stuff, mainly suits & smart clothes from my working days, that I can't be bothered to ebay, & was going to try this company, looks like it will be the local Hospice CS.

    Why is everyone complaining about i used it not long ago & was very happy with the value i received. At the end of the day the clothes you send are obviously not in use to you anymore so any cash is just a great way of earning a little extra in hard times. If you read the T&C you can not be disappointed. I have many friends who have used this site & been more then happy. You may get more using car boots but this takes time & it may be a waste. Problem is to many people are quick to judge & complain in this country & not support businesses who also support the economy. READ T&C AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! I received £35.00 for my UNWANTED clothing!! ACE!! :-)
